Finally, More Pictures
Contro and I, Classic Saddle Seat, 2002 ~ My first time ever showing Saddle Seat w/ no lessons - we won!!! Just goes to show that all it takes is determination sometimes. My equitation is a little iffy, but not too bad considering...I think I'm sitting too forward. Saddle Seat is not easy, especially if you're not accustomed to those flat and slippery saddles.
Bobby and I at our first show together. We won our very first class, much to the shock of other exhibitors. They were kind of like "Who and Whaaaa?" I didn't do as well after this, but beating this class of 11 sure felt grand! Look at my smile. I know there were some tears in there too. 2 years after this, I began working Bobby western...he does well.
Voila! Western Pleasure Champions at the Michigan ASHAM show. The ASHAM show is actually our Michigan Saddlebred Futurity, but they share it with the Morgans! I've always liked that show. Most of the Michigan Morgans are usually in Oklahoma at Nationals at this time, and it's a great show to just kick back and have a good time!
